COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a part of a Single Hop IPA series by Mikkeller. We created this series to showcase hop varieties on their own. This gives the consumer the possibility of smelling and tasting the unique characteristics of each variety and hopefully helping to educate people about the wonderful world of hops. For each beer, the single hop variety was used in the same weight for bittering, aroma and flavor and for dry hopping. All 19 varieties of single hop beers in this series were brewed the same week and with malts from the same batches and the same yeast and fermentation temperatures. This is done to better compare the characteristics of the different hop varieties.

Hazy darkish amber beer. Good off white head. Softish dry palate. Nice creamy malt. The Nugget hops deliver plenty of tangy bitterness but not a lot of fruit. Trace of aniseed. Finishes dry. Not my favourite hop.

Beautiful amber color, hazy, with a generous thick head; it has a nice fine perlage. This one as well shows some cream and paper aroma; light magnesia, light sweat. Dry toffee and caramel flavor (apparently drier than the others); the hop gives a fair amount of resins too, well present till the end; even without a fruit profile, these resins give some shine to the beer. Strong and long final.
Good.
